David Bowie has returned to acting to play himself in a hilarious new US TV advertisement for XM Satellite Radio.

The rocker is confronted by rapper Snoop Dogg, looking for his missing necklace, as he hosts a radio show - but Bowie insists he hasn't seen the chain.

When Snoop moves on, sly Bowie pulls the missing 'Snoop' chain out from under his desk and chuckles to himself.

The commercial also features baseball star Derek Jeter and comedienne ELLEN DeGENERES.
